Pelosi’s Coronavirus Bill Could Allow a Nationwide Prison Release of Felons and Illegal Aliens

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s most recent coronavirus relief package incorporates a plethora of ridiculous mandates, including sections that would allow “nonviolent” felons to be set free from prison and illegal immigrants to be released from federal detention.

On Tuesday, House Democrats unveiled the $3 trillion proposal, which also includes protection for illegal immigrants if their jobs are deemed “essential.”

Releasing convicted criminals onto the streets to re-offend and granting amnesty to millions of illegal immigrants is just part of top Democrats’ partisan wish list.

Taking into consideration that violent criminals often plea down to a lesser offense in return for a shorter prison sentence, it simply does not make sense to release federal prisoners en masse.

According to the U.S. Sentencing Commission’s 2018 annual report, over 97 percent of federal convicts took plea deals instead of facing more serious charges at trial, as Breitbart reported.

So while releasing thousands of “nonviolent” felons might sound like a good idea in theory – at least if you’re a Democrat – it could lead to dangerous criminals being released onto our streets.

“During a declared national emergency relating to a communicable disease, [the legislation] mandates the release into community supervision of federal prisoners and pretrial detainees who are non-violent and, for instance, pregnant women, juveniles, older prisoners and detainees, and those with certain medical conditions,” a summary of the bill reads.

The bill “Modifies probation and supervised release policies to avoid unnecessary in-person contact with probation officers and to reduce the numbers of those supervised and those imprisoned for violations” and “Mandates the release of non-violent pretrial defendants on their own recognizance.”

Pelosi’s HEROES Act also includes provisions that 1) grant judges the ability to shorten the sentences of convicted felons and 2) terminate the fees that jail inmates need to pay before their trials so they can be released without posting bail.

“During the COVID-19 emergency, expands court authority to order compassionate release for federal prisoners and to reduce sentences, and removes administrative barriers that slow the ability of 81 prisoners to seek compassionate release. Authorizes courts to temporarily release persons who have been sentenced, but have not yet been transported to a Bureau of Prisons facility, to protect them from COVID-19,” the summary reads.

“Authorizes the establishment of a grant program that distributes funds directly to state and local courts, with the condition that they impose a moratorium on the imposition and collection of court-imposed fees and fines during the COVID19 crisis,” it adds.

The massive multi-trillion dollar bill is making it easy for most of the establishment media to gloss over the small but powerful sections about illegal alien amnesty.

One section buried all the way down on page 1,762 of the House Democrats’ “HEROES Act” directs the Department of Homeland Security to release back onto the streets illegal immigrants being held by Immigration and Customs Enforcement.

“The Secretary of Homeland Security shall prioritize for release on recognizance or alternatives to detention individuals who are not subject to mandatory detention laws, unless the individual is a threat to public safety or national security,” the bill reads.

Moreover, under the act, illegal aliens fortunate enough to work in “essential critical infrastructure” are protected from being deemed in violation of the Immigration and Nationality Act.

That protection is buried all the way down on page 1,737 of the bill.

Employers who hire illegal immigrants to work “essential” jobs would also be exempt.

Thankfully, this partisan play was flagged by Ken Cuccinelli, acting director of U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services, who said it was a push for “amnesty.”

“These pages of the proposed bill create a deferred action program for aliens based on the CISA essential workforce list. Granting both deferred action and employment authorization. The aliens wouldn’t even have to apply for an EAD or deferred action, they get it automatically,” Cuccinelli tweeted.

Instead of focusing on getting getting Americans back to work, Pelosi and her Democratic cohorts are intent of freeing felons and illegal immigrants.

We have already witnessed inmates being released from prisons and jails in California and New York.

If bill were to pass, this short-sighted policy could affect communities across the nation.

The sheer chaos that would presumably ensue would make it difficult for us to get our society functioning again.

Unfortunately, it appears this is precisely what some Democrats are hoping for.

  1. IT strikes AGAIN !! The high priestess of stupid has tried yet another communist ploy against our great country. She is pushing for a shooting war that she will loose. If it passes all the way thru, the Immigration and prison systems should bus all the released lawbreaker to her front gate !! Just sayin !!

      1. Maybe, let the illegals go south of our border while the rest of the criminals are let go in Pelosi’s compound.

  2. All the more reason to declare the democratic party a terrorist organization. Theres more.
    Democrats have allowed Islamic influence into our schools and let them infiltrate hollyweird. Thus allowing islamic doctrine into our culture.
    This won’t play out well for America.
    WAKE UP!

  3. Pelosi and her Socialist pals will give illegal immigrants, released prisoners, homeless, whomever……money, drugs, drivers licenses, whatever it takes for a promise of a vote for the Dems on November 3. Hopefully her days as the Speaker of the House will end soon.

    1. She needs to be put out they all do soreass has paid them all off. They must think we are stupid. If this election doesn’t come out with Trump winning they will all find out what the ppl can do and enforcement will back us they are ppl too. God bless my fellow Americans and comrades

  4. Fortunately due to the number of aides reading this monstrosity of a bill, the most egregious items Democrats were hoping to fund have had the light of day shone upon them. It has NO CHANCE of enactment. Senator McConnell has said it is “DOA” in the Senate and President Trump has said he will not sign such bill. Only dishonest and uncritical Democrats will complain this hurts the little guy.
    It is no coincidence that darkness is equated with evil. The Democrat Party, the party of darkness, abortion (murder), Anti-Americanism, is scattering like cockroaches, as the light shines upon their evil intentions. November is approaching. Cast your vote to rid OUR government, at all levels, of as many Democrats as possible.

  5. Whoever advocates for the release of criminals should be held responsible for any crimes committed by the released criminal……. assign criminals to bullying dems……make it upfront and personal……

  6. UN FLIPPIN BELIEVABLE!!!!!!!!!…..pig losi and anyone else who finds this acceptable should be locked up with the same criminals she wants released….

    1. This is a play directly out of the Communist Manisfesto…..they have done this in the past just before they take over a Government or Country. I guess this is what their true objective is: Create a “new order” out of dis-order.

  7. If released they have to forever live in California. That bitch is a mental case. Her family made her move away from Maryland.

  8. NANCY HAVING DEMENTIA, SHE NEED OBAMA CARE AND GET HER PILLS .
    IF YOU LIKE YOUR DOCTOR , YOU CAN KEEP YOUR DOCTOR.
    NANCY, YOU PASSED IT AND SEE WHAT’S IN IT.
    NEXT THING YOU NEED TO DO NANCY, HAVE A PLACE FOR HOME LESS IN YOUR YARD AND SERVE THEM YOUR EXPENSIVE ICE CREAM.
    ALL THE ILLEGALS TO.
    YOU LOVE THEM SO KEEP THEM CLOSE TO YOUR HOME.

    NOW SHE ACTING LIKE OBAMA , OBAMA CLEAN GITMO AND NOW NANCY WANT’S OUR PERION CLEARED OUT.
    JUST SHOW HOW FILTHY MINDS THEY GOT.

  9. Nancy would look her best alongside of Osama, ya know the headshot picture… she doesn’t have much that could be ruined inside that melon. That is because she is a drunken doll – an empty headed, ugly plaything…
